In the heat of midsummer 1942, deep in a forest in the heart of Poland, Briar Rose arrives at a castle that has fallen into the hands of an evil army. Ever since she was a child, Rebecca has been enchanted by her grandmother Gemma's stories of Briar Rose. Becca would have sworn the stories were made up, but on her deathbed Gemma extracts from Becca a promise to fulfill three impossible requests: find the castle, find the prince, and find the spellmaker. Her vow sends Becca on a remarkable journey to uncover the truth of Gemma's astonishing claim: I am Briar Rose. Jane Yolen's graceful retelling of the Germand folktale Briar Rose—known to some as Sleeping Beauty—sets the story amid forests patrolled by the German army during World War II.
Industry Reviews

"Terrifically moving." --The Washington Post

"Yolen takes the story of Briar Rose and links it to the Holocaust--a far from obvious connection that she makes perfectly convincing...Only a writer as good as Yolen could bring it off." --Publishers Weekly

"Both heartbreaking and heartwarming, Yolen's novel is a compelling reminder of the Holocaust as well as a contemporary tale of secrets and romance." --Booklist

"Showcases Yolen's skill at transforming the real world into a realm of fantasy." --Library Journal
